It's been some time, but I was thinking of you today; running around, all of us cousins-making trouble for our parents. I miss you and know you are well. Please know that.

Dear Nephew, This is the first year I missed calling your Dad on the 24th. They say life goes on, and it does. But we never forget. I will never forget you. I will call your Dad tonight. I think of you often. A lot about when your were a little boy, playing with my boys. God bless and Keep until we meet again. Love always, Uncle Art.

Seaman Ferreby, nine (9) years later you are still remembered, with honour.

Thank you for your service. You died protecting the citizens
of The United States of America. A tragic loss.

On this day April 7th 2000 your Grandfather, my Father passed away. I came to Delaware to greive and to bury him. I remember how you comforted me my sweet Nephew.Then not a year later, you left us. My Mother dreamed you reached up from the ocean and grabbed my Father's outstretched hand.
I know that Our Lord had him by the waist as he leaned down to you Christopher. I know this is truth. I will never forget you Christopher. You are always in my deepest thought and prayers.
Love always, Uncle Art.

On today, the sixth anniversary of your death, I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Semper Paratus!

Seaman Ferreby, today marks the 7th anniversary of your tragic death. You folks in the Coast Guard are a vital part of law enforcement yet so often, people see you just in the life saving and national defense roll. You put your lives on the line every day doing your jobs and sometimes, sadly, lives are taken.

Though you may have been taken from your family and friends, I'm sure you never truly left them and you are by your son's side every minute of every day, giving him the kind of advice only a Dad can. You will never be forgotten by them, nor are you forgotten by a grateful America. You are a hero.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.

It broke my heart to see this picture. What a sweet and living father he must have been.

Chris I don't know you but watch over your little boy and wife.

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.
